Moving the Pointer with the Mouse Motion Commands

In addition to the mouse movement methods described above, you can also move the mouse by using the mouse motion commands. Say, for example, "Move Mouse Right." The mouse pointer begins moving to the right and keeps moving until you say "Stop."

Enabling the mouse motion commands

To use the mouse motion commands:

  1. From the Tools menu on the DragonBar, choose Options and then the Commands tab.
  2. Select Enable mouse motion commands and click OK.
  3. Click the Speed button to choose how fast the mouse pointer moves when you use a mouse motion command.

The mouse motion commands

Here is a summary of the available mouse motion commands.

Move Mouse Up Fast
Mouse Move Down Faster
Drag Mouse Right Much Faster
Mouse Drag Left Very Fast
  Upper Left Slow
  Lower Left Slower
  Upper Right Much Slower
  Lower Right Very Slow

While the mouse is moving, you can say any of the commands above. You can also say:

  • "Stop" or "Cancel" to stop the mouse from moving
  • "Up," "Down," "Left," "Right," "Upper Left," "Lower Left," "Upper Right," or "Lower Right" to change the direction in which the mouse is moving
  • "Faster," "Much Faster," "Slower," or "Much Slower" to change the speed at which the mouse is moving
  • "Click," "Double Click," "Right Click," or "Left Click" to click the mouse buttons
  • "Go to Sleep," "Stop Listening," or "Microphone Off" to turn the microphone off

To specify which mouse button (left, right, or center) is being held down during mouse drags or if you want the SHIFT, CTRL, or ALT key held down during the mouse drag, use one of these commands before saying one of the drag commands in the preceding table:

Left Right Right Shift
(requires three-button mouse)
Shift Right Control
  Control Right Alt

For example, to drag with the SHIFT key held down, you could say "Shift Mouse Drag Up." To drag with the right ALT key held down (the ALT key on the right side of the keyboard), you
could say "Right Alt Drag Mouse Upper Left."
